Microsoft Edge Developer

Hi, are you a web developer or designer?

“No, I just want to share feedback on Microsoft Edge.”

Please use the Feedback Hub (requires Windows 10) to submit your feedback in the Microsoft Edge category. This site is for web developer and designer feedback only. Other feedback will be closed without action.

“Yes, I’m a web developer or designer with feedback for the Microsoft Edge platform.”

Great! This site is where the Microsoft Edge team collects feature requests from the web developer and designer community in the categories listed to the right. For bugs on existing features, please log an issue on the Issue Tracker.

Your feedback will help us with planning and to better understand how web developers and designers are using the platform. Top standards-based feature requests will also be copied over to status.microsoftedge.com, where you can track its development status.

For the most actionable feedback, please search and up vote for existing suggestions before submitting a new suggestion, and create a separate suggestion per idea. Note that off topic or inappropriate suggestions may be moderated. The Microsoft Edge team will use suggestions as an important input, but there are several additional factors that inform the final roadmap.

A note from our lawyers: Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. See the Terms of Service for more information.

How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

    • Allow to use other HTML engines from Chrome or Firefox

      IE always was problematic form developer point of view. I always need to google-hacks or I had to write additional code. Only once in my life IE works better than other browsers (IE10 and minor CSS issue works as expected in IE). Trusted engines should be easy to switch for any user. Allowing to use other engines under IE will solve a lot of coding just for IE only. Like https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WICKET-5608 special patch for one IE version. When new IE version was released patch was not needed however I need to add new script-code and rewrite functions.

      • Spell check pre-existing text

        If you type in text it is spell checked but not if it pre-exists from before for spell checking fields. All other browsers do it. Current workaround is CTRL + A, CTRL + C, CTRL + V (select all, copy, paste).

        • An option, to exclude particular line from stopping at with "break on all exceptions" enabled

          Many JS frameworks still use constructs like
          try{
          do-some-browser1-specific-stuff();
          }catch(e){
          do-some-browser2-specific-stuff();
          }

          Which, when "Break on all exceptions" is enabled, hurt debugging a lot.

          It would be nice to exclude some lines like this do-some-browser1-specific-stuff(); from breaking.

                                  • Allow users to add HSTS entries

                                    I know IE is going to support HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS). I suggest IE to allow users to add domains to its HSTS sets, like chrome://net-internals/#hsts in Chrome.

                                    Given that HTTPS Everywhere is not (officially) available on IE, this feature would be a good substitute.
